Open Demos are a series of events introducing tools and methods that can be used with open data.
In this Open Demo we'll explore and analyze open data using Polychart's drag-and-drop data visualization software. The software makes it easy for those without programming and statistical backgrounds to better understand data and produce beautiful charts.
All experience levels are welcome!
